CÔTES-DU-ROUSSILLON Coste Danjou-Banessy Espira de l’Agly, biodynamic wine, Cotes Catalanes, stunning purity, richness and drinkability, 100% Carignan Gris, barrel fermented and aged. This is exceptional white wine made biodynamically from old vines on schist soils which produce very ripe berries and wines with intensity and texture to spare allied to a racy taught freshness. These are the wines that we want to drink over and over again, white wine that is multi dimensional, that is generous yet shows finesse and subtlety, where the use of oak adds to the wine rather than takes away from it.

Grapes and wine have been part of the Danjou & Banessy families for many generations.

While the tradition has always been for fortified and rancio wines, the addition of vineyards during the 50's allowed them to build a ‘library’ of old wines. In 2001, Benoit Danjou took the reins, joined by his brother Sébastien a few years later. They are the keepers of the family’s style, and stock, of old fortified wines, whilst also adding light wines to the range. Domaine Danjou-Banessy uses a single-vineyard approach to winemaking across its 17 hectares of land, using vines with an average age of 60 years. The wine production method is fully biodynamic and non-interventionist, and has been for generations. All of these factors lead to delicious wines that are lively, elegant and softly textured.
